Hello to all reading this post. I have been doing research in regards to contractor selection and I have notice that many contractors in my area are not listed with the Better Business Bureau. My inquires are:
1)Would any experienced rehab investors tend not to enlist the services of a contractor not listed with the Better Business Bureau?
2) Is it sensible to select a contractor solely based on references from other rehabbers/landlords? (even though the contractor is not listed with the Better Business Bureau)
3)Do rehab investors tend not to go with contractors that are listed with the Better Business Bureau because these companies are more established and will be likely to charge more for rehabilitation services?
4) In the instance that a contractor that is listed with the Better Business Bureau tends to give higher estimates for house restoration/rehabilitation than smaller companies, is the higher estimates a plus/minus in regards to the hard money process?
5) If anyone has any suggestions please list or supply them
